Dear Colleague,

We urge you to join us in supporting NOAA’s National Sea Grant College Program by signing onto the FY2018 programmatic request letter to the Commerce, Justice, and Science,
and Related Agencies Appropriations Subcommittee.

This letter requests strong support for the Sea Grant program, which operates in every coastal and Great Lakes state, as well as multiple territories. Sea Grant is heavily
utilized by America’s shellfish farmers and fishermen, as well as other coastal small businesses that rely on marine resources.
The deadline to sign onto this letter is Friday, March 31.

If you have any questions or would like to be added to this letter, please contact Alexa Combelic in Rep. Courtney’s office (
or Kevin Dowling in Rep. Zeldin’s office (
